Julia Molony: Once again, plight of transgender people is ignored

Proposed legislation regarding a controversial issue languishes in front of the Government, seemingly stuck on the eternal long finger. It is an issue related to parity and social justice. We are already in breach of the European Commission of Human Rights with regards to this issue. Meanwhile, as politicians dither, a vulnerable group is forced to navigate a legal twilight zone of obfuscation and confusion, that endangers their quality of life and perhaps mental health. Sound familiar? No, I'm not talking about abortion. I'm talking about the Gender Recognition Bill, a motion to legitimise the new identity of transgender men and women.
